April 7 Red-tails on the move

Cold NE winds this day had expectations low . Clearing skies by mid afternoon brought out the raptors as thermals developed quickly. Kettles of 50 birds plus several strings of sqauking Sandhill Cranes made for a nice finish to the afternoon.  This day wrapped up the first month of  the hawk count and Kevin’s tally of Red-tails is already over 5000 . The Golden Eagle numbers are at 297, a total unimaginable to us all before this season.  We still await rarities such as Swainson’s Hawk and Black Vulture. A few days of warm spring air would be welcomed as well. Steve Baker
